He's an offensive player, he needs to be put in a role where he can be that player. He's not magically going to change into something he's not.

I don't disagree that Tangradi can be put on a shutdown line. Just with his size alone he'd be an asset in our lineup. But I think it'd be beyond dumb not to give him a legit 10-15 game stint with Sid/Geno while we have serious question marks in our top 6. One less top 6 forward we have to acquire if he can find chemistry with one of them.
